Huge Neck - Manitoba buck


It is a big help for any taxidermist to get the proper measurements on any trophy to be mounted. This is my 2016 buck and he was a big bodied deer - full rut. I ordered the largest form they make!
Check with your taxidermist before you go on any hunt to find out what measurements will assist in producing the best mount for your harvest.

That is a beautiful buck. His neck is so big it takes away from the rack which is also beautiful. Nice job

great looking mount there and its amazing how big some of the canadian white tails can get!

I on a sad note once shot a huge one like that up in Alberta, and then brought it to a local taxidermist who screwed me big time, he couldn;t find a forum with a large enough neck and head,, so, he cut my cape down to make it fit what he had, and its one of the worst mounts I ever got,( I have 43 WT heads mounted)
and was such a huge buck, neck and body wise, field dressed at 250 lbs, scored only 150 B&C,
But I could have killed the taxidermist for what he did to it, as NO taking back after he cut it down on me, and I am NOT the type to use another cape , only mount things I kill 100% even a new cape to me wouldn't fix this,as to me wouldn;t be the same!

after this, I started taking measurements of deer before they went to a taxidermist and TOLD them up front what I did and what I expect back

it pays to learn these things

every time I look at that mount I get angry, well some what, I still recall the hunt, which was a great time

but that taxidermist, never got any more work from me!

43????? Wow I can't justify one let alone 43. But of course mine are only pine board stensomatic worthy. I imagine your game wall is pretty nice looking.

HAHA< yeah I have a lot of deer heads, broken up between 3 property's I have, and I used to hunt several states a yr, wa sa hunting nut for too many yrs I think, as I hunted 3+ months a yr, and thats a LOT of tree time, looking back now I think I was half nuts, and spent way too many hours sitting in tree's in poor weather! HAHA!

but I was very lucky, as a good friend of mine was a taxidermist for 20+ yrs, so he did most of my work for costs, so I got many of them done dirt cheap, and quality was top shelf to boot!

I really wish he never gave it up, as it was a huge challenge trying to found another taxidermist that didn;t SUCK, after him, he spoiled me with the quality he did, NOT to mention the price
honestly since he stopped doing them, I have yet to find one near me worth HALF what they charge, far too many do SO SO work at best!

that's one thing I really learned about taxidermist and taxidermy
most don;'t know what a POOR mount is till they get it next to a GOOD one
when you only have one, to compare things to, its hard to see the small things that are NOT right

I used to go to taxidermist events with him for and see how they judge mounts, very interesting things and great info to learn if you plan to have a few done over the yrs!

NOW so many things mounted are honestly a pain in the butt, and dust magnets
but I will die with them all, and who ever gets them after me can do as they wish, there memories to me with a little more I saved of the hunts

That is one huge necked buck, what did his neck measure. Looks like 26 plus inches.

The older I get the better I was.
